Target Announced New Store in Santa Clara, Calif.
Target announced plans to open a new store in Santa Clara, Calif., in October 2014. The new store will be located at 2004 El Camino Real in the Santa Clara Town Centre. To date, Target has announced plans to open 10 Target stores in 2014.
The Santa Clara store will be approximately 140,000 square feet, and will offer guests the everyday essentials and exclusive brands they have come to expect from Target. In addition, the store will include a selection of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods, as well as a Starbucks, a Target Pharmacy and a Target Optical, to further enhance guests' shopping experience.
The Santa Clara location will employ approximately 200 team members. Target will host job fairs approximately two months prior to the new store opening, at which prospective candidates may apply and interview for open team member positions. Candidates may also apply online at Target.com/careers or at in-store kiosks located in all Target stores approximately three months prior to the new store opening.
"Target is excited about our first store in Santa Clara and our continued expansion into the South Bay area," said Cary Strouse, Target's senior vice president of stores in the Western region. "With the opening of our Santa Clara Target store, we are bringing 200 jobs to the area and delivering our 'Expect More. Pay Less.' brand promise to even more guests in the area."
Target creates strong partnerships with local organizations in all of the communities where the company does business through Target's community giving programs. This store will start a local grant program, contribute to the United Way and donate food to a Feeding America member, or approved agency. Target also encourages team members to volunteer their time to serve the needs of their community.
